The Flintoft system was home to at least one habitable world and as at 3145 was located in the Sirdar Operational Area of the Capellan March within the Federated Suns.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Flintoft system is located near the Diefenbaker and Ridgebrook systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The Flintoft system was colonised by the Taurian Concordat at some point prior to the beginning of the Age of War.[4]

Planetary History[edit]

Reunification War[edit]

Flintoft was attacked by the SLDF in March 2581 as part of the Reunification War. The SLDF's First Battle Fleet arrived as a Taurian Defense Force fleet was delivering fireships to the system. The Taurians deployed the fireships, and the SLDF Navy lost sixteen WarShips. The Taurians lost nine WarShips, at least twenty DropShips, and over a hundred fireships. Despite these losses the SLDF's Second and Third Divisions landed in late March along Flintoft's industrial belt. Located in the Copper River Valley, the two Divisions came under attack by over three hundred conventional fighter aircraft. After suffering through bombing and strafing attacks, the SLDF eventually established air superiority. By July 31st, the SLDF controlled the Copper River Valley, but securing the rest of the world took another eleven months.[45]

Jihad[edit]

Flintoft was one of the first worlds to be hit during Operation MATADOR, the AFFS counter-offensive against the Taurian Concordat. The first Federated Suns forces dropped onto Flintoft on the 5th of May 3080, with the BattleMechs of the Davion Assault Guards and First Syrtis Fusiliers leading the way. Under the command of General Marguerite McCaffee the Assault Guards dropped alongside the Syrtis Fusiliers to establish the first beachhead on the planet under cover of AFFS aerospace fighters and Pocket WarShips, including Arondight-class DropShips. The assault began with coordinated attacks by AFFS fighters to take control of the skies over Flintoft while key C2 networks on the surface were hit by orbital bombardment. This was followed by the Assault Guards and Syrtis Fusiliers combat drop, which was in turn quickly followed by an entire regiment of jump capable battle armor, also deploying via combat drop. With the 'Mech and battle armor forces securing a beachhead, additional conventional forces quickly followed. The initial assault on Flintoft was covered by the Federated Suns News Service whose embedded journalist, Peter Remonde, covered the combat drop and assault from the jump seat of General McCaffee's Atlas.[46] Heavily outnumbered, the two defending battalions of the Concordat Jaegers were completely wiped out within two weeks, the Assault Guards leaving the First Fusiliers to hold the world while they pushed on to secure Carmichael.[47]

Military Deployment[edit]

2578-2581[edit]

2582-2587[edit]

3079[edit]

- At this point in time, the Concordat Jaegers were deployed across Ridgebrook and Flintoft. The Jaegers was at 70% of full strength.
